Billy Boy: The Sick Little Fat Kid #1 (of 3) - Billy Boy The Sick Little Fat Kid is a journey into the insane mind of a young overweight kid and his adventures within his sick and twisted world. Done in a style of classic cartoons from the Fleischer and Warner Brothers studios, Billy Boy rendered in a very cinematic and 'cartoony' style. This issue: In "Slingshot Madness," Billy gets into some trouble when he and Teddy shoot up Old Mrs. Pine's house with their brand new wrist rocket. In "Swamp Jitters," Billy is on the run from a giant spindly insect. And finally, in "Bad Charm Bill," our pudgy star gets caught up in the black arts... and it doesn't end with a smile!
Billy Boy: The Sick Little Fat Kid #3 (of 3) -Billy Boy, comics's answer to the cry for more sick and twisted books, returns with a vengeance. In "The Two Headed Beast From Hell," Billy stumbles upon a monster who is eating the remains of is latest victim. A chase ensues through the grungy back alleys of SOHO. In the frightening continuation of "Slingshot Mischief," Billy must now find his way out of the Haunted Forest. Too bad it's filled with hungry trolls and tentacled monstrosities. This comic is Grimm's Fairy Tales gone horribly, horribly wrong.
Billy Boy: The Sick Little Fat Kid #3 (of 3) -The final issue of the 3-issue mini-series. In the frightening conclusion of "Slingshot Mischief," Billy finds his way out of the Haunted Forest, but into something much more horrible. Also-- This comic is Grimm's Fairy Tales gone horribly, horribly wrong.

Risks and challenges
Billy Boy #1 & #2 were completed years ago and #3 was started and never completed.
The sketches for Billy Boy #3 have been started. Kickstarter funding is needed for:
1. The time to complete 32 pages of comic book art. I can do roughly a page a day, drawing and adding graytones if I can work undisturbed. I will post the page progress as I do them.
2. I also need the raise the funding to print the comics. I'd like to do a run of a few hundred so I can match a Billy Boy #3 with the rest of the Billy Boy #1s and 2s soI can sell them as a set at conventions after the KS is complete. After that I have a new series called BILLY BOY COMIX AND STORIES #1 (which I'd also like to Kickstart).
3. Promotion. Billy Boy #3 will need some promotion though facebook and google ads.
4. Conventions and store signings. Some of the funds raised will be used for travel expenses to do a convention and comic book store signing tour.
5. Storage. Funds needed to store the books so my house isn't overrun by comic book boxes.
6. Web Comic. Funds needed to help fund the new Billy Boy web comic.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
